On Sept. 20, Uniqlo Singapore will launch AIRism Absorbent Sanitary Shorts, feminine care underwear with three layers to guarantee “all-day dryness” and minimize leakage at all stores.

The liquid-absorbing shorts layers dry quickly, control odor and absorb up to 40 milliliters of liquid and replace conventional menstruation products. They are made of laminated, water-repellent fabric to prevent fluid from leaking from the rear to the waist. 

The washable and reusable shorts retail at S$29.90 (US$22), come in four different colors and sizes up to 3XL. It can be worn with a sanitary pad as well.

Other items in the line include maternity shorts and leggings, wireless bras and seamless underwear S$9.90 (US$7.35) and up.
